AVID campers Michel Fowkes and family
are recovering after scooping a $200,000 adventure package.
Earlier this year, Michel was browsing on the Jayco website with her
sister when they came across The Bullish Adventurer competition.
She submitted an entry, never thinking she would actually take home the
prize of the fully customised Ford Ranger PXII and Jayco Adventurer 19ft
But the decision to give it a go has turned up trumps, with Michel
describing the moment when she found out she had won as 'surreal'.
"It was amazing, it's the best prize," she said.
Michell said the family had been talking and joking about what they would
do if they won, but never thought it would actually happen.
"We've done a six-month trip in a caravan before and have always talked
about getting another one, so this is amazing."
The Bullish Adventurer competition was launched in conjunction with the
new National Towing Guide website, with Pedders and Jayco supporting the
initiative and coming together to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to win the ultimate adventure package worth $200,000.
Michel, along with husband Leigh and their two children, has always love
caravanning and camping.
"We go camping as often as we can," she said.
"I just love getting the kids outside ... it's one of my favourite things
and good quality family time.
"We would love to do Uluru before the end of the year, it has always been
on our bucket list.
"We are not sure where else we will go – everywhere! There are a lot of
places within a few hours of home that we can easily go to for a weekend.
"We just want to say a huge thank you to Jayco and Pedders, it's such an
amazing prize. It's awesome."
